    A judge ruled in favor to allow 1000s of graves to be transported for an O'Hare Airport expansion, despite concern from religious leaders. The case will be taken to the Illinois Supeme Court.

    A Michigan man charged with attempting to fly with a weapon is sitting in a Chicago jail.

    Francis Cook IV, 67, of Delton, Mich., is facing a felony charge on attempting to board an aircraft with a weapon, according to Chicago police.

    Transportation Security Administration officials spotted the .380 semiautomatic handgun in Cook's luggage after an X-ray scan at O'Hare Saturday at 11:30am. The loaded gun had six rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber, Chicago Police Officer Darryl Baety told the Daily Herald.

    Cook was heading to Dallas, said police.
